week calling for the biggest changes to gun laws this country has seen in two decades. yesterday the president surrounded by children who wrote him letters after the newtown tragedy urged congress to take action on a number of proposals including universal background checks for anyone buying a gun, restoring the ban on military style assault weapons and limiting magazines to ten rounds, giving law enforcement additional tools to prosecute gun crimes and improving the mental health system for young people in this country. the president also outlined 23 executive orders that mostly reinforced existing laws, speaking directly to congress he urged action despite a tough political road ahead. >> this will be difficult. there will be pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical all out assault on on liberty. not because that's true but because they want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue for themselves. the only way we'll be able to change is if their audience, their constituents, their membership says this time must be different. tha
anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal than surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. our journey is not cleat until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. until bright young students and engineers are he be liennisted n our workforce rather than expelled from our country. >> there's grievance there, not just rights. people waiting in line. i said this before, i was lucky to be there when south africans first got the vote, all south africans, and they waited for four or five hours and i thought that was unbelievable. and then to watch people in america in this advanced society of democracy having to wait eight hours. it looked like a punitive action by republicans to be blunt about it from state legislatures and big capital city that is decided, you know what? let's make it hard for these people. maybe we can cut down that vote. >> that's one of those great underr
? you think that's good? >> that's the law in florida. we have 1020 life. if a crime is committed in possession of a life it's a mandatory 10 years, if you pull out the gun a mandatory 20 years. these criminals are in jail. >>steve: senator rubio will be kwroeupbg -- joining us. >>brian: a terror group is holding at least a dozen people hostage including seven americans. >> here's what the latest is. the algerian army is surrounding a gas facility where hostages are being held. the terrorists say that the attack and the kidnapping is in revenge for french intervention in the country of mali. overnight the algerian government has been in talks with both united states and france, and we understand that the algerian government is now talking to tribal leaders that apparently do have ties to the terrorists. here's how the thing went down. there was a bus carrying american, british, norwegian french and japanese workers. that bus was ambushed by two armed men and two people were killed. they took off to the gas field and the total number of hostages remains unclear but reports say it r
, as well. >> let's talk about gun laws because i know they're considering gun laws in texas that would allow swron to carry a concealed weapon on a campus. they can't do that now, right? >> reporter: it's interesting. the texas legislators have gone through this debate several times. many years ago they passed a conceal handgun law where you can hear a handgun and that's what was used in this incident. but there are places where even despite having that license you you can't carry a handgun. churches and school campuses are one of those. ironically enough, there are lawmakers in austin that want to change that aspect of the concealed handgun law here in texas and allow students to carry guns on to campus. so we'll see how this plays out in that debate, as well. >> all right. ed lavendera, thanks so much. >>> investigators say the new mexico teenager accused of murdering members of his family had hoped to go on a killing spree and die in a shoot-out with police. the 15-year-old was arrested saturday night after deputies found the bodies of his mother, father, brother and two of his sist

and sisters are treated like anybody else under the law. >> and if there was any question about whether president obama would go big in his second term, he answered that in this address, laying out an ambitious second-term agenda from tax reform, to immigration overhaul, preserving the social safety net, to reducing gun violence. and he promised progress on climate change. >> we will respond to the threat of climate change, snowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. >> yesterday, leaving the inaugural platform on the west front, the president waxed nostalgic. >> i want to take a look one more time. i'm not going to get to see this again. >> now, great britain has royal weddings, but this was a uniquely american ritual, with all its pageantry, a time when the city seems full of former presidents, when hollywood descends, every once in a while this happens, on the potomac. music's first couple, that's beyonce and jay-z watched him take the earth. and president carter started another transition 36 years, getting out of the presidential car and walki
't actually reject their legislation. i don't want to be considered part of that, but i will sign it into law. that is exactly the way that governor bob mcdonnell played it a year ago when virginia republicans got themselves nationally famous with their bill forcing unwanted and medically unnecessary ultra sounds on virginia women, right? bob mcdonnell did the same deal back then. he expressed surprise. what is this you are doing in the legislature, fellow republicans. i certainly did not expect this. this is not my priority. don't associate me with this. and then he signed it, thus earning himself the national nickname ever more of governor ultrasound. same deal. what is this? what are you doing there? i definitely don't want to be famous for that. democrats in the virginia capital tell us that if the surprised gerrymandering bill passes and the governor does sign it, they will ask the courts to declare it unconstitutional. but meanwhile, virginia republicans are also pushing a bill that would also change the state's rules for electing a president. based on the congressional maps that virgin
, they would even say no to their own ideas. >> this law failed by seven votes. when seven republicans, who had co-sponsored the bill, had co-sponsored the idea suddenly walked away from their own proposal after i endorsed it. so they make a proposal, sign on to the bill. i say, great. good idea. i turned around, they're gone. what happened? >> this was a hallmark of president obama's first term. republicans were going to say no, no, no, no matter what he offered. even if what he offered was their own idea in the first place. that is how it went for months and then that is how it went for years. and now, what's new? he is not doing that anymore. >> i have put forward a very clear principle. i will not negotiate around the debt ceiling. we're not going to play the same game that we saw happen in 2011. so we're not going to do that. i will not negotiate around the debt ceiling. we're not going to do that again. as i said earlier this week, one thing i will not compromise over is whether or not congress should pay the tab for a bill they've already racked up. what i will not do is to have that neg
in the second amendment. >> i'm afraid president obama may have a king complex. >> he's already abused the law enough times that it's just been staggering. the american revolution was all about fighting such a monarchy. >> we want all tools available to use, including that impeachment. >> with that kind of congressional opposition to the president, it was no sweat for nra president david keene to dismiss the president's initiatives as nothing but a grab bag of liberal feel-goodies. >> this is all sort of makes you feel good, but, in fact, it doesn't do much. >> he's confident saying that because the nra has spared no expense in quarterbacking all research on firearms and their impact on society. that is when they're not using their resources to target the president's daughters. in a new ad calling the president an elitist hypocrite for sending his daughter to a school with armed guards. an ad "the washington post" fact checker awarded a whopping four pinocchios. far from being elitist the relatively small force of unarmed security guards at sidwell is not unusual for a school of its size. more
for that second suspect is the main concern at this hour and i'm told by a law enforcement source that one of the main focuses that they are looking at right now, law enforcement agencies there on the ground is a wooded area next to the campus of lone star college. they believe that's where this second suspect might have fled into so they are paying a great deal of attention in that wooded area and i believe that creates a whole level of terrain and law enforcement officials on the ground must deal with. so at this hour that is what they appear to be focusing on to find that second suspect. >> and we're getting more information, ed, some of it obviously very consistent with what you're hearing, this coming in from the harris county sheriff's media relations department. let me just update our viewers on what they are saying. as i said, a lot of it consistent with what your reporting shows. they reiterate one suspect is in custody, three people taken into custody. they continue to interview all witnesses to gain as much witnesses at the campus library and five agencies have secured a perimet
with implementing background checks, tracking firearms, making sure existing gun laws are fully enforced. executive actions mean he does not have to get congressional approval. on the legislative side, he called for criminal background checks on all gun sales. also limiting magazines to ten rounds, and reinstating the 1990s ban on military-style assault weapons. now he acknowledged that some of the legislation faces strong opposition in congress. >> this will be difficult. there will be pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical all-out assault on liberty. not because that's true but because they want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue for themselves. and behind the scenes they'll do everything they can to block any common sense reform and make sure nothing changes whatsoever. >> congressional republicans so far have been cool to the proposals, though some are open to limiting high capacity magazines and tightening background checks. house speaker boehner saying only that he'll review the president's recommendations. a few republicans, though, a

-doping agency that he was contrite, that he was serious about taking their findings as the new law of the land. that their findings about him were correct. he had to show he was serious about that, and if he did that, maybe they would lift the lifetime ban they had imposed upon him. the second thing he had to do was build public sympathy. try to remind people why they fell in love with lance armstrong in the first place. on the first front failed miserably. he actually drew a line through the heart of the report. the heart of the report said that lance armstrong was actually a doping ringleader, that he wasn't just another cyclist who used peds, but that he organized his team to actually use dope. >> he wasn't seping of that last night. >> no. he said absolutely not. and today they are not happy with that interview. on the second front about building public sympathy, i mean, my word, i felt like i was watching the titanic hit an iceberg. i felt like oprah kept trying to help him, like throwing him lifelines, like try to make yourself more sympathetic, please. all he could do is stare back with

in international waters, where there's no law against finning. but on land, laws can be enforced. in cape town recently, authorities raided several processing plants owned by hong kong chinese. seven tons of fins were confiscated. this is only a small fraction of the whole. and after you've seen those fins laid out, have another look, as we did, at sharks doing what sharks do-- at a cow shark weaving through an underwater forest; at the perfect geometry and grace of a blue shark in cold, clear water. it's not the shark's fault that we've demonized him for so long. besides, we need our demons; they've been with us, in our minds, as long as gods. so the next time you're in a chinese restaurant and feel like some soup, why not stick to the egg drop or the wonton? give the shark a break. >> since our report first aired, the worldwide shark tourism business has continued to thrive. but there is some good news for the sharks. in january of 2011, president obama signed into law the shark conservation act. it outlaws shark finning by requiring that all sharks caught in u.s. waters be landed with their
to be done with force, north korea says, not with words, as it, the united states, regards jungle law as the rule of its survival. so does this mean that north korea is going to start lobbying nuclear test missiles at the united states and, even more importantly, are they even capable of that? the truth is, last december, north korea had its most successful launch to state. it managed to carry a payload of 1300 pounds and travel about 6,000 miles or it is capable of that which would bring it to the coast of carolina. they say all they were trying to do was get a satellite into space. that's all this program was about. but intel general analysts say they don't believe it. they think the problem is, given time, north koreans could test enough and one day they could swap this out for a nuclear warhead. >> so if you combine, tom, that test with this latest message, does that mean that the u.s. will strike the mainland with a nuclear weapon? >> in a word, wolf, no, it does not. they really are profound. they have to look at the issue of re-entry. the simple fact that you can get a rocket l
